Waiting on Wednesday (175)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

I am, in fact, a horrible person. Why? Because I am hideously behind on this author's contemporaries (I've only read her first and second) and that's a damn shame because her contemporaries are some of the utmost best. They're cotton candy and that scene from Despicable Me in the fluff department, and the romance is always adorable, stellar, and oh so feelsy. I've been in the mood for such contemps lately, and this author's fit the bill perfectly. I just need to get them all. And her latest one? Oh my gosh. It takes place in a LIBRARY, OKAY? So I would like it now, please. And thank you. Because I just really need this book by my side.

In this irresistible story, Kasie West explores the timeless question of what to do when you fall for the person you least expect. Witty and romantic, this paperback original from a fan favorite is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson.

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?

Are you waiting on something positively fluffy and adorable?


  1. Gosh I cannot wait to read this book! A few days ago I noticed that it was pushed forward two weeks, which is SO exciting! January could not come fast enough. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my WoW post!

  2. I wish I could love her contemporaries. I enjoyed her split second duology. Happy reading when it's published
